My MIL and my mother don't really like chocolate and my dad is diabetic so rather than giving them chocolate for Easter I decided to get them some flowers to plant in their gardens. Now rather than just giving them in the box they came in from the shops I thought I'd see how big a basket I could make by doubling the measurements for the Easter baskets I made earlier in the week. They turned out to be the perfect size. The flowers are Peacock Orchids and should flower from June to July and hopefully brighten up a small part of their gardens each year.
Today the sun has decided not to come out but it has at least been dry so we have managed to cut the lawn and do some weeding. There is still some more to do which hopefully we can do when I get home from work tomorrow. Our garden needs a lot of work doing to it really but neither of us are really keen gardeners so at the moment our objective is just to keep it tidy looking throughout the year - not an easy task as we are both easily distracted with other interests.
